Here's some facts for you about the realities of meeting room time management. And... fair warning, you're probably going to want to sit down before you read these.
- In the US alone there are over 11 million official business meetings each day.
- That's around 2.6 billion meetings per year!
- Annually, over $37 billion is wasted on unnecessary and unproductive meetings in the US.
- $37 billion. That's the entire GDP of the Democratic Republic of Congo
So, what is causing such colassal waste? And how, if at all, can it be fixed?
